Tags hard rock heavy metal metal Sydney. I know this is a satirical critique of totalitarianism, but how lovely to have someone actually light up at you though. It's like an extension of the blush. I think it's cute. I like In which a forehead-mounted Emotion Register ER is made mandatory by the government, in order to liberate Britain from sexual reserve. I like the idea of sian and me sitting on the sofa, our little lights glowing. This wasn't great.

This book was first published in an has not aged well - from their odd attitudes to television, archaic words for items of furniture and very tiresome attitudes to women to sexuality.

The concept was interesting but, given that my immersion in the story was hampered by the aforementioned cultural offset, the plot wildly diverged from interesting exploration of the impact of technology on society to wild adventure where brave hero is strong and moral, saves the day and gets the girl.
I lost interest in all the characters by the end. Nov 14, Chris Rigby rated it it was ok. Brian Aldiss became a very good science fiction writer. This novel, however, barely qualifies either as a good book or as science fiction, despite its central motif of the Emotional Register which the population of Britain in is required to have implanted into their foreheads. Actually, this novel is less about the futuristic ER, and more a sideswipe at British culture just before the Swinging Sixties threw all such prognostications out the window and made them irrelevant overnight.
The main Brian Aldiss became a very good science fiction writer. The main problem with it though, is not its now horribly dated milieu which actually fascinates - a window into an era that time has largely forgotten , but by the young Aldiss's attempts to be unendingly clever.
Clearly, in his youth, he was aiming to be "the new CP Snow" or "the new Kingsley Amis", and in this he fails. Every character on every page is positively dripping with oh-so-clever or oh-so-weary insights into the Future Of Culture, or The State Of The Nation, either in narrative oh really? People actually talked that way? By the end of the novel, you're as tired and cynical as the main protagonist Jimmy Solent, and no closer to understanding the main theme, except that the "British are repressed about sex". It's not a boring novel, but it is unconvincing and in love with its own 'bon mots'.
On the one hand, it is a brilliant social satire, easily on a par with Huxley's "Brave New World": "Emotion registers" or ER's have been invented, which, when implanted on people, give off a glow when the person wearing it is attracted to the person they're currently near to. And yet It's taken me some time to figure out why, but I think it's the protagonists of the tale, all off whom could have come straight from playing upper-class twits in Ealing comedies. I couldn't find a character to empathise with, which is why it didn't work for me.
It is just the characters that let it down for me. Flawed but interesting. Mar 07, Dave rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction.

The fact that a real life news story broke during the week I was reading it, regarding colour-changing lipstick to exhibit desirous thoughts, demonstrated that old saying about truth being stranger than fiction. May 11, Fred rated it liked it. Interesting novel I doubt anyone will ever read, but if you do, the most fascinating thing was a little passage about the angles of a rooms' architecture mirroring the sexuality of the female lead.
It was very Ballard-esque, but written five years before Ballard's more well-known Atrocity Exhibitions and Crash. Stuff like that, British new wave work. Good book, but three months later I barely remember it, which could equally be the fault of the book or my aging brain. Good read especially if you Interesting novel I doubt anyone will ever read, but if you do, the most fascinating thing was a little passage about the angles of a rooms' architecture mirroring the sexuality of the female lead.
Good read especially if you like literary fiction more than SF, in which case you probably aren't reading this. Aug 15, Patrick rated it really liked it. I received this book from a friend. I have to say that the plot was good and quite unique with the concept such as ER Emotional Registers which the government implemants and forces each its citizens to wear in their foreheads.
